Metric surface finish symbols

++++

Q. I am trying to find out what the symbol "N9"for a finish requirement converts to in Ra.

Thanks

A. Roughness grade N9 = 6.3 Ra (in micro meter, which is equivalent to 250 Ra (in micro inches)

Q. I AM LOOKING FOR A CHART FOR ALL OF THE ROUGHNESS IN THE N GRADES. N5,N6,N7 ETC.

Q. What is the inch equivalent of metric 3.2 surface finish?
Is there a chart for metric or conversion?

A. 3.2µm (micrometer) is equivalent to 125 µin (128 µin to be exact) or Grade N8
It is customary to convert metric roughness to imperial roughness by multiplying 40 to the metric roughness
So:
3.2 µm * 40 µin/um = 128 µin

Q. What metric standard defines the "N" series surface roughness. Has the standard 1.6 roughness callout been phased out to read N7?
